Symptoms and signs that might be lung cancer: A new guide to optimal investigation and referral in general practice

Symptoms of lung cancer are often vague and can be overlooked, however, early and rapid investigation and referral is necessary for optimal patient outcomes. How can we give ourselves the best chance of identifying possible lung cancer in our busy primary care practice?

Learn about Cancer Australia’s new resource Investigating symptoms of lung cancer: a guide for all health professionals. You’ll hear from a health professional who is living well with stage 4 lung cancer, as well as expert GPs and a respiratory physician, as they take you step-by-step through this important guide, in a case-based setting.

Upon completion of this module the participant should be able to:

  • Implement recommendations from the resource ‘Investigating symptoms of lung cancer: a guide for all health professionals’ to provide appropriate investigation of adult patients who present to primary care with symptoms that may be lung cancer.
  • Recognise risk factors for lung cancer such as lifestyle, personal, environmental or occupational risk factors, including in different population groups and people who have never smoked.
  • Investigate people with symptoms that may be lung cancer within optimal timeframes, and in line with best-practice care.
  • Refer patients to a specialist linked with a multidisciplinary team in a timely way, as a best practice approach to cancer care.
